At a Glance

Prunus insititia 'Merryweather' is an excellent, all-round performer producing an abundance of plum-like fruits with blue-black skin and juicy, yellow flesh. These are large for a Damson and have a lovely, strong acidic flavour that's valuable for culinary use. Although it’s partially self-fertile, it’s advisable to grow near another damson, gage or plum to help maximize the yield such as Plum domestica 'Czar' or Plum 'Victoria'.

It requires minimal pruning and does not need to be thinned out. A reliable deciduous cropper with a hardy construction that's ripe and ready for cooking in September.

Root Stock: St. Julien A

Self-fertile

 

Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries

Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.

Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
